I recommend Wallace’s essay collections which serve up his acerbic and distracted wit across a range of pet subjects and are a great introduction to his writing. A Supposedly Fun Thing That I’ll Never Do Again includes two non-fiction tennis tales (his later essay “Federer as Religious Experience” for the New York Times is also well worth seeking out) as well as the brilliant title essay in which he describes his often excruciating experience aboard a cruise ship.
